Someone Could Get Hurt: A Memoir of Twenty-First Century Parenting by Drew Magary


Kids introduce entirely new levels of chaos, emotion and, most of all, exhaustion into the lives of parents. It's hard to explain this to non-parents (who probably spend their free time going on long vacations and drinking margaritas by the pitcher full, for all I know), but if anyone comes close to capturing this roller coaster life we parents have chosen, it's Drew Magary.

In Someone Could Get Hurt: A Memoir of Twenty-First Century Parenting Magary, a writer for the irreverent sports blog Deadspin, shares in excruciating detail his experiences as the dad of very young children. He captures vividly the moments of mayhem, despair and abundant joy that come with fatherhood with candor and a sharp wit. While humor is the centerpiece of the book, Magary also talks very frankly of his mistakes and insecurities as a dad. His stories are immediately relatable for parents and uproariously funny for any reader. Imagine David Sedaris with toddlers.
